First Time or Return Trip to China

  • When to Go

    A lot will depend on what sort of weather you want or can tolerate. Generally the comfortable seasons in major tourist destinations are fall (September and October) and spring (April and May). It is recommended to avoid major Chinese public holidays, unless you want to join in some celebrations.

  • How Long to Stay

    Knowing what you expect to see or do in China will help determine how long you should stay. We recommend at least 8 days, for visiting the ‘Golden Triangle’ ­– Beijing, Xi’an and Shanghai. If you are interested in experiencing more of China, like taking care of giant pandas, admiring amazing landscapes or visiting minority areas, you will need more time.

  • Where to Go

    China, full of stunning sights, rich culture, and mysterious places, is a popular destination, with an extensive range of tour options.  Top experiences not to be missed:

    Get know the history of China: Beijing (4-day) and Xi'an (2-day);
    Take care of pandas: Chengdu (4-day);

    See dream-like karst landscapes: Guilin (3-day).

  • Return to China - Where to Go

    For your second trip to China, the main issues are your budget and where you want to go: landscape Zhangjiajie (3 days), ?Huangshan (3-4 days), Yangtze River Cruise (4-5 days); or Minorities Yunnan (5-6 days), Guizhou (5-6 days), or Tibet (5-6 days).

    The Silk Road (Lanzhou, Dunhuang, Xinjiang for 7+ days), the western part of China, is worth a visit, but you should note that remote cities cost more than regular ones in respect of transport and guide-service.

  • Return to China - What to Do

    If you have only been once to China’s iconic sites, why not re-visit and create some more unique experiences?

    Hike to the unmaintained part of the Great Wall or camp on the wall. Learn how to weave bamboo in Huangshan with a local craftsman. Or visit the minority people in Yunnan, observe their traditions and daily lives.

    If you return with family or friends, we do have age-appropriate activities such as learning Mandarin, taichi, kongfu or Chinese-cooking classes, where you will have fun with your family.

    We’re sure such experiences will enhance your return trip to China.
